After going 1-1 in their road series against the Astros, Milwaukee steps into tonight’s match with a 39-29 record. At the present time, that record is good enough to peg them No. 1 in the NL Central. However, there standing is far from firm as the Chicago Cubs are but a game from tying with the Brewers. Naturally, Milwaukee will want to get the best of the struggling Giants in order to build on their NL Central lead.
Tonight’s matchup will mark the first time this season these two have crossed paths. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear that the Brew Crew have a decisive advantage. After all, they’re averaging 5.1 runs per game while the Giants are delivering 3.8. Additionally, it’s clear that Milwaukee will have the better pitcher on the mound tonight.
All in all, look for the Brewers offense to take off once again tonight. They’ve scored 19 runs in their last 3 matches and will be going up against a pitcher with a 7.16 ERA. Furthermore, since they’ve won 7 of their last 8 when scoring 4 or more, it’s clear this contest will be going to Milwaukee.
Players to Watch: Lorenzo Cain (4 HR, 27 RBI, .247 BA), Mike Moustakas (21 HR, 45 RBI, .278 BA), and Christian Yelich (25 HR, 54 RBI, .345 BA).
San Francisco Giants
After picking up the last two games over the Padres, San Fran has advanced to 28-38 on the year. This ranks them dead last in the NL West however, and places them 16 ½ games behind the NL West leading Los Angeles Dodgers. Although they don’t have much of a shot in the division, San Fran can still aim to give their fans something to cheer for tonight.
Tonight the Giants offense will certainly be put to the test. They’ve scored 10 runs in their last 3 matches so they’re going to have to find some way to keep up with the Brewers. Surprisingly enough, the Giants have won their last 5 when delivering 4 or more runs. This may give them some hope tonight against Milwaukee. However, they will have to find a way to win despite having Pomeranz on the mound.
This is because Pomeranz is having quite a pitiful season. In fact, he has one of the highest ERAs in pro baseball amongst pitchers with a minimum of 40 innings played. But if that wasn’t enough, his 1.75 WHIP is pretty bad as well. Nevertheless, he’s coming of a decent outing against the Dodgers that saw him go scoreless for 5 innings. But before that the Giants’ pitcher gave up 25 earned runs in 14 ½ innings.
Players to Watch: Steven Duggar (4 HR, 28 RBI, .241 BA), Kevin Pillar (7 HR, 28 RBI, .225 BA), and Joe Panik (3 HR, 19 RBI, .245 BA).
